Today we found a small novelty in the great bazaar of Aliexpress.com where we found a TV-Stick called T98 MINI. A box format with Android currently very minor but that can be useful for what areas this time comes with a Quad Core Allwinner H6 SoC and Android 9 as OS. As usual in this format, few available ports and few opportunities to receive updates as it is currently a very minority format.
SoC, RAM and storage
The T98 MINI TV Stick includes the Allwinner H6 SoC, a Quad Core with ARM Cortex-A53 processors that reaches 1.8Ghz and an ARM Mali-T720mp2 GPU capable of processing video up to 4K resolutions at 60fps and 6K at 30fps. This Smart TV Box integrates 1/2/4 GB of DDR3 RAM and 8/16/32 GB of storage memory that we can expand thanks to the microSD card reader that is located on the side of its small plastic box.
This dongle comes with wireless b/g/n WiFi connectivity with internal antenna and Bluetooth 4.0. As connectors it includes a j, a USB 3.0 port, two microUSB ports, one of them we assume exclusively for power and an HDMI 2.0 video connector. The operating system that comes standard in this box is Android 9.0 and among the accompanying accessories we find everything you need to use this stick from the first moment with a basic IR remote control, cables and power supply.
